Avery Industrial Asset Tags Receive OH&S 2020 Product of the Year Award

Brea, California – October 9, 2020: Avery Products Corporation is pleased to accept the award for Signage & Identification 2020 Product of the Year for our PermaTrack® Metallic Asset Tags. From our Avery Industrial division, the asset tags cover a range of onsite identification solutions from tracking increased PPE during the COVID-19 outbreak to managing valuable equipment and tools.

The entire PermaTrack® line of products are engineered for printing on standard desktop laser printers, and includes destructible, tamper-evident and matte white film variations. This advancement in asset tag printing technology has provide ground-breaking onsite asset tracking solutions for manufacturing, medical and educational facilities.

PermaTrack Metallic Asset Tags were nominated for the 2020 OH&S Product of the Year by the Avery Industrial team because of their exceptional durability, anti-static printing and high-performance in real-life customer applications. Colwin Chan, Group Product Manager for Avery Industrial, says:

“We saw a real gap in asset tracking solutions for our industrial customers— including construction companies, manufacturing plants, medical facilities and offices. In particular, there was no practical, effective way to quickly and cost-effectively create barcoded asset tags in-house. We knew that if we could create durable asset tags that people could print onsite using the laser printer they already have we would really be on to something.”

Indeed, PermaTrack Metallic Asset Tags became more relevant than ever as facilities of all kinds saw a rapid influx of new Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) during the COVID-19 outbreak. In facilities where PermaTrack tags were already being used to track valuable tools and equipment, safety and health managers were able to quickly expand to tracking critical PPE for their facilities.
